Bridesmaid Purses instead of Flowers

Personalized Purses with Fabric Paint - ©Cindy Rippe 2012
Our theme this month for the Designer Craft Connection Blog Hop is "SUMMER CRAFTS".  Since this seems to be a popular time for weddings I thought I'd share this fun idea for Bridesmaids.

You can purchase an inexpensive clutch and decorate it with Fabric Pens and Paint.  A purse with a personalized design that matches the theme of your wedding could be carried down the aisle instead of flowers. These would be perfect as a gift for your attendants or the Mom's too.

I sketched the designs free-hand but you can copy a pattern and use transfer paper to apply it to the purse. Trace the linework and then fill in with fabric paint if desired.  I used a Pentel Gel Roller for Fabric and DecoArt So Soft Fabric Paints.

There is no more lovely, friendly and charming relationship, communion or company than a good marriage.  Martin Luther

Love the designs. Afraid I would have to use a pattern. Drawing is not my strong point!

Thank you Terry - I do love to draw flowers!

Thanks Alison - aka Fiddly Fingers - I feel the same way about your designs. Really cute and crochet is not MY strong point. Don't you love seeing what other creative people can do??
